    here you go zwebx and xlocox

    heres my 1986 mazda FC3s series 4 rx7.
    has a freshly rebuilt N/A 13B 2 rotor rotary engine in it
    pedders suspention
    speedy spider wheels that arent made anymore


    im planning on getting either apexi or HKS exhaust system for it. cant deside for either twin duels or duel catbacks. not those massive ones on most skylines and wrxs in melbourne bit big imo.
    not really sure if i want to turbo or not kinda going away from wanting it and just leaving it N/A
    getting a S5 turbo bonnet for it and a similar spoiler that is on it but its the same colour as the paint and fair bit bigger. kinda wrapps around the car more.

    few weeks ago i was in an accident with a truck. he failed to stop at a giveway sign at a round about and T boned me in the left side (he needed to give way to the right as i was already in the round about when he was approching it.) was half way though the round about and saw him coming towards the round about and by the time i was almost out of the round about i saw he wasnt stopping and hit me quite hard. car was lifted and did a 180.


    so truck driver left the accident which is illegal and everyone in my area are totally ****ing clueless (bit of an argument there) it went back to the city to get repaired.

    the car has massive sentimental value to me so its getting fixed not buying a new one

    going to buy a body kit for it thats like stock so its cheaper and all that.
    probably no updates for awhile

    they arent really but its getting sorted out soon hopefully.

    kind of lucky i suppose the car could have banana'd or broken suspension arm again. or gone over the top of the car. was one of those full size trucks with the big bull bar.
    does drive like nothing happen just bit breezy. my uncle is an ex car wrecker and his given it to the same people thats fixed his ute and bmw so its in good hands

    haven't done much but had put seat covers on which looked pretty good but werent a great fit or quality. was black fake leather look with blue stripe and stitching.
    also had the alternator replaced as it died.
    heres a cold start up of it
